Sewage Gas Leak Temporarily Moves District Attorney's Office

- Employees at the Wichita County District Attorney's Office took refuge in temporary quarters Wednesday from a terrible sewage smell that's been plaguing the officer for about a week-and-a-half.

Courthouse officials say D.A. employees voluntarily moved to vacant rooms in the county courthouse to conduct the day's business.

They say plumbers have been looking at the sewer pipes trying to figure out where the pungent smell was coming from.

Finally, they say they were able to find the problem pipe today.

Officials say a sewer pipe above the county jail had a tear in it and was leaking sewage gas.

Bill Presson, county commissioner for precinct four, says, "We had the fire department come in with their sniffers and there's not enough parts per million to even get a reading on, so we were lost, but we're going to have them back first thing in the morning."

Presson says the leak should be fixed tonight.

He expects district attorney employees to be back in their normal offices Thursday morning.
